Adapted from Roberto Saviano’s controversial non-fiction book, Gommorah, intertwines five separate stories of people whose lives are touched by organised crime. Among the main protagonists is a pair of wannabe thugs who take their cue from movie gangsters, a grocery-delivery boy who must learn to kill, and a criminal mastermind who plots to make a fortune while dumping toxic waste. Gommorah is a new sort of gangster film, it’s raw and very unforgiving. It is a no holds barred document of a system that has not just failed but breeds more criminals. A haunting and ferocious film.
